Genealogy advisory summer service at National Library of Ireland

From Fiona Fitzsimons at Eneclann (www.eneclann.ie):

Free genealogy advisory service in the National Library of Ireland, Summer 2014.

Eneclann & Ancestor Network make it a hat trick!

The joint consortium of Eneclann and Ancestor Network are delighted to announce that they have been selected by the National Library of Ireland to enhance its provision of Summer genealogy services, following a competitive tendering process.

Speaking on behalf of the National Library of Ireland, Honora Faul said today:

“We’re delighted to welcome back Eneclann & Ancestor Network, to support and enhance our Summer genealogy service. It’s an invaluable service for anyone tracing their family history.”

Fiona Fitzsimons, Eneclann:
“We’re very happy to have been chosen to provide the genealogy advisory service again this summer. We look forward to working alongside Francis O’Carroll and Christina McDonnell, our professional colleagues from the Library. In the Summers of 2012 and 2013 we saw a significant rise in the numbers that availed of the genealogy service. We hope to welcome a record number of visitors to the Library this summer.”

Hilary Mc Donagh of Ancestor Network:

“We are delighted to be part of this wonderful role for a third year running. It’s a privilege for us to assist visitors to the Library and to help them trace their family history. Being part of the Library’s genealogy service allows us to share our expertise, but it means we come face to face with the ordinary Joe or Josephine, and learn what they are most interested in. We love to team up with our friends in Eneclann: both organisations can work together to help the public with all their research needs”

Summer hours for the genealogy advisory service in the National Library of Ireland commences Tuesday 2nd June 2014.

The service is free to all visitors to the Library.
9.30 a.m. to 4.45 p.m. Monday to Friday,
9.30 a.m. to 12.45 on Saturday.

(With thanks to Fiona)
